The New York Jets have agreed to a new 3-year deal with former Utah defensive tackle Sione Pouha, ESPN reported Monday.
The details of the deal weren’t immediately announced.
Pouha, 33, is regarded as one of the top run stuffers in the NFL. The Jets have openly commented about their desire to keep the former Ute on their team.
The 6-foot-3, 325-pound tackle got a late start in the league because he served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Pittsburgh, Penn. This 2005 N.Y. Times article tells about some of Pouha’s experiences at Utah and his mission.
